Drain blocked with leaves and mud

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 13:19, Thursday 3 January 2019

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 1 minute later. Council ref: 1501774.

I attach two photos of an area of road at the south end of Mount Beacon where it runs into Richmond Hill and the pedestrian northern section of Mount Road. Over many months leaves and mud have accumulated, completely covering a highway drain. As a result water running down Mount Beacon now flows on down Mount Road. In addition the mud is a slip hazard. I am sure resources are stretched but could you have a look at this please. Also, two seasons of fallen leaves have accumulated at the top end of Mount Road and are slippy when wet. Could they be cleared too?

  • Hi, you dealt with the leaves (thanks) but this is still a sea of mud which gets bigger! Any chance that it will be cleared please?
